My house is always filled with kids, mostly hungry, growing boys who constantly crave snacks. My oldest son came up with a great idea: tortilla pizza, or as the kids call it, “tortizza.” It has become a quick and easy favorite.

You can mix all the ingredients and get it in the oven in fewer than two minutes, and the kids can choose their own toppings. The tortillas we use are made from five simple ingredients and have no preservatives. So this snack is not only delicious, but also healthy. Hope your kids love tortizzas as much as mine do! 

Tortizza: Simple Tortilla Pizza
Ingredients
1 flour tortilla (I like TortillaLand.)
¼ cup marinara sauce
¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
toppings (diced peppers and olives are great options)

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Place the tortilla on a small pizza pan.
3. Evenly spread sauce over the tortilla.
4. Evenly sprinkle the cheese over the top and add your toppings.
5. Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted and golden and the tortilla is crispy, about 7 minutes.

Tips
1. If you do not have a pizza pan, you can place the tortilla directly on the middle oven rack.

2. Let the tortilla sit for a minute after taking it out of the oven.
